Calla Lily Sympathy Card

The design of the card is based on the CPS sketch challenge, but is also a sympathy card for the challenge 104.
The creation of the Calla Lilies using the Build a Blossom punch was inspired by a tutorial done by Lynn Pratt on her blog, here but I modified the design somewhat.
I just love making flowers using this punch, and this is the 3rd different flower I have made.  Such versatility!! But that's what I want in a punch!
Here's the card:
Stamp: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Basic Black
Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black, Vellum, Garden Green, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Nite Owl Designer Paper (retired)
Accessories: Corner rounder punch, Word Window Punch, Scallop border punch, Build-a-Blossom punch, Square Lattice Embossing folder, Finial Press Embossing Folder, 1/8" Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon

Making the Calla Lily:
I punched out 3 of the larger blossoms, trimmed the scallops off the top, and trimmed the bottom. After inking the middle of the petal with Crumb Cake, I folded the edges near the bottom until they overlapped ever so slightly and gave them a slight pinch.  Before gluing the edges down, I cut a small strip of daffodil delight for the stamen and glued it in the middle of the blossom. The overlapped edges were then glued down using Tombo glue but you could use a glue dot.
Stems were cut from Garden Green cardstock.  The leaves were punched using the Build-a-Blossom in Garden Green and were pinched slightly before attaching to the vellum.
